About us / Innovation

Innovation and scientific method have been L-ACOUSTICS®’ principles from the outset. Originally rooted in the fields of physics and fundamental acoustics, the company is best known as the inventor of modern line source arrays thanks to its published research on Wavefront Sculpture Technology® and the legendary V-DOSC® system.

Over time L-ACOUSTICS® has deployed its research activity to the fields of structural engineering, power electronics, signal processing and digital networks. L-ACOUSTICS® develops its own in-house simulation and modeling tools and conducts practical experimentation to observe and validate its models.

L-ACOUSTICS® has regularly published and presented its research work to the scientific community. As an engineering-driven team, L-ACOUSTICS® is a highly respected organization in the audio manufacturing industry.
